What is Concrete Imaging, Scanning & Inspection Services?
With new construction or the renovation of a project, its likely you will be cutting into a concrete slab. Ever wonder what you might be cutting into? The damage you could cause can cost you thousands of dollars if you don’t know where the electrical, mesh conduits, post-tension cables, pipes or cables are located under that concrete slab. That’s where a concrete imaging & inspection survey comes in. At ACS Underground Solutions our well-trained, experienced technicians can pin point what is “below” finding the hidden dangers “within” which will avoid costly mistakes, danger to your employees and public safety. Having the information you need regarding the precise location of rebar, conduit, post tension cables and other structural items is critical to any job site BEFORE YOU DIG!
Benefits of Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) over Radiography (X-Ray)
We use the latest ground penetrating technology to provide critical information eliminating the “unknowns” for architects, engineers and contractors who rely on us to give them the facts before drilling, cutting, or coring through any concrete structure. Unlike X-ray technology, concrete imaging & scanning with Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) requires only single sided access to perform surveys. This means that concrete slabs of all types can be scanned with no site hazards or closed off work areas. With GPR thousands of square feet can be inspected in a day to determine where digging is safe at a lower cost. GPR scans can reach a depth up to 10 feet deep and data is gathered quickly, hence results can be produced immediately and quicker then Radiography.
Benefits of Concrete Imaging, Scanning & Inspection Services
Architects, engineers and contractors need a reliable system to keep from cutting or coring concrete in areas where utility lines, water lines, rebar, pipes and post tension cables are beneath the ground. This is why utilizing ground penetrating radar (GPR) is essential before you dig. Some benefits to concrete imaging, scanning & inspections services are:
- Reduce safety risk to the public.
- Keep everyone on the job site safe.

- Save time in the long run knowing where to cut or drill.
